Supporting service users to understand their choices around eating and drinking is a key part of the SLT’s role.  In 2021, we published guidance to support members’ understanding of how they can work effectively within a multidisciplinary team to support service users who are eating and drinking with acknowledged risk (EDAR).

After three years we took a moment to consider how this guidance is being utilised and what questions and further learning is needed.

The webinar was an opportunity to hear from the lead author, Dharinee Hansjee, and KC Alex Ruck-Keene who discussed the guidance and the impact of a recent high profile legal case.

By attending the webinar, delegates were able to:

  • Understand the purpose and intricacies of the ‘Eating and Drinking with Acknowledged Risks’ (EDAR) guidance
  • Understand the impact of current high-profile cases on staff and patients
  • Ask specific questions to the panel
